CARPOOL: Due to liability issues, BAS cannot organize or provide carpooling. Please be prepared to arrange your carpooling among yourselves and to help out drivers with gas money (A good rule of thumb is $4.00 for each hour of drive time. This trip would be about $8.00 each rider). Our event officially begins and ends at the trailhead.
